J. Daniel is our guest this week to talk about his new book "Suds Series: Baseball, Beer Wars and the Summer of '82." The Book is a comprehensive look at baseball and the larger culture in the season following the sport's first major labor conflict and its 1981 split season disaster. Daniel weaves the season's developments with pop culture references and the high-stakes battles between Budweiser and the Cardinals against Miller and the Brewers for both baseball and beer supremacy.
In part two, Andrew and Craig comment on the Pac-12's implosion and the exciting pennant race brewing in the National League Central.
